Doubt sinus problem: Frontal sinus if properly diagnosed by a cat scan almost never produces the feeling you are describing. How was the diagnosis of frontal sinusitis made? It does not sound like you have had a ct of the sinuses. Otherwise, you would not question tumor. If bppv (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo) has been ruled out, a neurologist may be helpful.

Difficult to say: You'll need a complete evaluation by an ENT specialist and/or neurologist.

Possible recurrence: What you describe is a possible recurrence of your bppv. Crystals are usually always present in the vestibular apparatus.
